    Microsoft continues to re-examine and bolster its platform company roots, this time by announcing app support for Outlook.com, coming in Spring 2015. Microsoft has been pushing 3rd party development on its Office properties, announcing API support for Office 365 last spring, and extending that with new SDKs for iOS and Android just a couple of weeks ago. Mail apps for Outlook, which work on Exchange Online and Server 2013, Outlook 2013, Outlook Web Access, and OWA for Devices, will soon work on Outlook.com, too, bringing app developers some 400 million potential new users, and all without…

    Microsoft took the wraps off its latest devices and services tonight, a few hours early after apparently breaking its own embargo, announcing not only the Microsoft Band, a wearable fitness device with 10 types of sensors to monitor everything from heart rate to GPS location, but also Microsoft Health, a cloud based service “that helps you live healthier”: Microsoft Health is a cloud-based service that helps you live healthier by providing actionable insights based on data gathered from the fitness devices and apps that you use every day.

  • Is Microsoft setting up a whale of a 2015 second half?

    Windows Phone missed a whole sales cycle this year. Consumers and businesses alike continue to pan Windows 8 / 8.1, and although sales of the Surface Pro 3 are encouraging, they’re still lagging far behind iPad sales. Microsoft is rumored to be getting into the wearables market, but it’s almost November and it’s rapidly approaching a deadline for any kind of a splash to be made in this year’s holiday season. Windows Phone sales are off worldwide again, the already struggling phone ecosystem is losing what little share it had, and the Xbox One is dropping prices yet…

    First it was a terabyte of storage, and now Microsoft has one-upped itself, announcing today that its offering unlimited storage for Office 365 customers. The offer includes both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, according to Chris Jones in a post on the OneDrive blog, and is “rolling out over the coming months”. If you’re a current Office 365 customer you can put your name on a mailing list to “put yourself at the head of the line”.

  • Microsoft debuts a new header for your online apps

    Microsoft’s online apps are sporting a bit of a new look today with a new app switcher for Office Online and the Outlook.com Mail, People, Calendar, and OneDrive apps. The new switcher resides in the upper left corner of the online headers, providing a consistent and convenient place for app switching while taking up far less real estate than in previous versions. The familiar square tiles are still in evidence once you open the switcher, but they’re confined to a small box, in two rows, instead of lined up across the header: Once you’ve opened a document in Office Online,…

    Duane Forrester
    17 Oct 2014 | 2:51 pm
    Authority is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “a person or organization having power or control in a particular, typically political or administrative, sphere”. For our purposes, we also understand that “authority” conveys a sense of trust and influence. Searchers generally want authoritative sources to engage with. They want to be able to trust the sources they visit. Naturally, this means being an authority ranks pretty high on the “must do” lists for most businesses. But becoming an authority, as noteworthy a goal as it is, isn’t an easy task. Some folks simply start…

    I blame the meta keywords tag.  That little so-and-so started all this.  Well, the “tag” and a few crafty humans, really. The idea was pretty simple. If the keyword appeared in the meta keywords tag, the page was relevant to the topic. And, on the surface, this was a solid idea. Something useful to the systems, yet invisible to the average person. Alas, with a simple right-click, the beginnings of modern day search optimization was born. “What if I added more words? What if I repeated the word or phrase?” And so began the quest to modify pages to satisfy a search algorithm. In truth…

    Nothing changes the cultural archetype of the “salesperson” more than technology. In the early 1900s, salesmen were Professor Harold Hill from “The Music Man,” riding the rails and selling imaginary instruments until they were run out of town and on to the next city. Mid-century salesmen were travelers like Willy Loman, mid-Nineties salesmen were Alec Baldwin’s character in Glengarry Glen Ross, driving an $80,000 BMW, but if we’re looking for a sales archetype for 2015, we don’t need to look any further than T-Pain.
